Farmer’s Market and Bell


A few weeks ago I learned that our city is having a Farmer’s Market this summer. I have been very excited ever since I heard there would be one so near my home. I love fresh veggies and fruit and was really looking forward to getting some today.

Not knowing the planned opening day (today) had been postponed until next Saturday I took off early this morning to purchase some fresh veggies and fruits. There were two men standing in the parking lot, one I knew one I didn’t know. We had a nice conversation and the man I did not know gave me some celery and green onions.

Awhile after getting back home there was a knock at the door. My son and daughter in-law brought me an ear of corn, a tomato and a peach. They had gone to a roadside veggie and fruit stand. I enjoyed a yummy tomato sandwich and that sweet juicy peach right after they left. They also brought me a bell from Oklahoma…that has special meaning to me.

The trip and getting out early was not a disappointment, very much the opposite and I received fresh veggies and fruit without spending one cent. I just never know from one minute to the next where and how I am going to be blessed. I hope that those who blessed me today will be blessed also.

And I hope all that read this post will be blessed in a special and unexpected way this weekend.

    Such a lovely post, Maggie! It’s true … the best blessings often come when you do not expect them. And that makes them even more wonderful, doesn’t it? Hugs to you, Chancy and Pooh!

    Can’t beat the groceries nor the price. Nothing at all like fresh and free.

    That was so nice and I’m glad you have a fun time! That bell is cute, can Chancy ring it for treats?

      If Chancy ever rings the bell you will be the first ones we tell. πŸ™‚

    Wow, this was indeed your luck day. So many gifts. Those little unexpected blessings really count. Such thoughtful family members and a generous farmer… Nothing like a tomato sandwich from a freshly picked tomato and a nice ripe peach. I bet you saved the ear of corn for later. So yummy.

    Have a great weekend Mag.
    Smiles & hugs
